|new domain name|
domain name change
| 8:51 am on Jan 12, 2010 (gmt 0)|
I want to change the domain name of my private website.
From this great forum I could conclude that a 301 is the best way to keep google rankings.
What exactly should the entry in the .htaccess be like?
Redirect 301 / [newdomainname.ext...]
Redirect 301 [olddomainname.ext...] [newdomainname.ext...]
The files themselves stay on the same host.
Are there other things to keep in mind when changing the domain name?
Thanks for the advice.

do a search on: htaccess redirect
but maybe this would answer your question
RewriteRule (.*) [newdomain.com...] [R=301,L]

I've always found the most efficient way is to do a url forward direct from your domain registrar IF they offer that facility.
